Sofia Vergara is reportedly headed to the Great White Way to play the “take no mess” character Mama Morton in the Tony-winning revival of Chicago. Queen Latifah played the Morton role in the 2002 film version of the musical.
Vegara will star in the show for five weeks, from April 27-May 24, before heading south to perform in the Miami production for several days. She will then rejoin the New York cast for one more week, from June 1-7. It’s difficult for us to picture the lovely Colombiana, 36, as a jail matron, but that’s why they call it acting, right?
